              Reading up a bit more on this, it also seems like they want stuff like CBS to break from the merger as well and turn into its own branch that's owned but not run by Paramount.

    Phil has a net worth of over $40M, thanks to doing nothing for 10+ year at Xbox. He doesn’t care if he gets fired or not, he won’t be hurting financially for the next 1000+ years, nor will his descendants.

    He wins, no matter what happens. Fired? Still uber giga wealthy. Got laid off? Don’t care, he’s still uber giga wealthy.

    Oh what’s that? You take the bus to work? Oh look!!! It’s Phil in his Bugatti Chiron with Forza stickers! Wave at him!!!
